Thanks again for your feedback. The black locust looks good but we’ll see what kind of pricing I can get because it will need to be shipped. I’ve got a good source for cypress (sinker/new growth) locally and I have some experience working with that wood.
MM, I built an large elevated deck with ipe 6-7 years ago that turned out really nice. While it is a great outdoor wood; it is hard to work and tough on tools, plus it is not domestic. I think I machined it more than worked it. LOL
